Franz Schubert established the musical genre of the Moments Musicaux: small, characteristic piano pieces that attempt to capture the moment or make it eternal. These qualities of the genre fascinate the Korean pianist Yeseul Kim. On her new GENUIN CD, she combines Schubert and Rachmaninoff together with the world premiere recording of the Moments Musicaux by the Seoul-based composer Uzong Choe. On this carefully curated album, the prizewinner of numerous music competitions presents herself as a subtle yet gripping pianist of stature—a true discovery!

"In the 'Andantino' she immerses pearly sixteenth-note chains in an atmospherically dense light, in the 'Andante cantabile' she penetrates the deeply melancholy soul life in a sound-sensitive manner. In the 'Presto' she brings the necessary portion of virtuosity with her, in the 'Maestoso' she releases concentrated pathetic forces. With always transparent sound layers, she creates a consistently lively dramaturgy."

"Kim’s playing is full of poetry, beautiful phrasing and lovely lyrical lines."
